A grand tradition of cruising
Fine dining has become one of the time-honoured traditions of cruising, so our team of chefs on board Saga Ruby work tirelessly to ensure your meals are of the highest standard, cooked to perfection and impeccably served.
The most important meal when you have a day of activities ahead. You could start with a tea or coffee brought to your cabin while you choose whether to enjoy a leisurely breakfast served in the impressive Dining Room or help yourself from the freshly prepared breakfast buffet in the Lido.
You might even prefer to eat in your cabin, which you can do whenever you wish for no extra charge.
Mid-morning coffee is followed by a hot or cold buffet luncheon in the Lido.
Alternatively, you can enjoy a waiter-served lunch in the Dining Room. There is an open seating policy in the Dining Room for lunch and breakfast, so you can sit where you wish.
Dinner served at one leisurely sitting
Dinner is always an anticipated occasion; sometimes stretching to six courses, you will be able to choose from a selection of appetisers, a dish from the tureen and a fresh salad.
There is always a large choice of main courses, including fish, game, meat and vegetarian dishes, and you can follow this with dessert from a delicious selection of tarts, pavlovas, soufflés and exquisite petits fours.
Each evening meal is served at one leisurely sitting. This means you can dine any time between 7pm and 9pm, so you will never feel rushed to finish your meal.
